Start video player

Jordan Watson is a viral video star thanks to his How to Dad parenting videos, and his three child co-stars. In this Funny As interview Watson talks about his clips amassing over 250 million views, and other topics, including:

  • How a joke video for a friend about to have a baby led to the first How to Dad video, which went viral  overnight
  • Travelling overseas to appear as How to Dad — including attending the red carpet New York premiere of film Boss Baby in his trademark short shorts and bush shirt in four degrees celsius 
  • Making videos to post on Facebook and YouTube every week since 2015 — "the key to success online is sticking to a schedule"
  • Juggling full time work as a director at Jono and Ben with How to Dad, before finding the courage to go solo
  • How the key to his success are his kids — especially middle daughter Alba (star of How to Put a Baby to Sleep)

This interview was recorded for 2019 TV series Funny As: The Story of New Zealand Comedy. All audiovisual content is copyright to Augusto, and may not be reproduced. Publication of Funny As extended interviews made possible with funding from the NZ Lotteries Grants Board.
